Google Down: Google Loading Blank Pages with “squid” in source

Written by Pavan Kumar on February 5, 2009


Its good to witness historic events, but bad to face results. This is another Google black day.

Google is now down. Not down, its up. Google is now broken. Well, I am sure, problem is not just with me. Many people are facing same problem and it is sure confirmed on twitter and hashtags. Google homepage currently is loading blank pages and it is not getting redirected to country specific domain.

Google Down

Well, at the time I am writing this paragraph, Google is back up. Google fixed the problem quickly. :-)

Not just the Google search, but also other Google services like Google Calander and Google Reader were down. Gmail was working perfect. If you have missed another historic web event, you have lost the chance, its now over. Approximate time was from around 3.57pm IST to 4.00pm IST.

One weird thing during this google blank pages phenomenon is some strange code in the source. The source code of Google read:

<!— squid —>

There has not been any updates from Official Blog yet about that. Let see who was behind the scene and what went wrong with Google for the second time.

Dear Google, it is not nice to see you down. We may accept downtimes with anyone else, but if you are down, internet goes mad.

Here is one funny video which shows how to break the internet with Google.
